FYP: Dietsch Brothers Tour & Ice Cream Social

Wednesday, July 12, 2023 (1:00 PM - 2:00 PM) (EDT)


Join Findlay Young Professionals as we hear from Erika Dietsch Brokamp, Owner & Wholesale Manager of Dietsch Brothers, as she shares a brief history of the business followed by a tour of the candy production areas! The tour will take us through the kitchen, production lines, shipping room, design room, and packing room. We'll wrap up our event with your choice of ice-cream or a milkshake - FYP's treat! 

When someone asks what Findlay is known for, there are a few landmark businesses that come to mind… one of those is Dietsch Brothers. The history of Dietsch Brothers began in the late 1920’s when Edward Dietsch purchased the C.W. Wickham Candy Co. and with the help of his two younger brothers Chris and Don, opened a candy and ice cream store using their own family recipes. Unfortunately, in 1934, Edward passed away of an infection. His wife, Doris, continued the business for a couple years, but when Doris also passed away at a young age, the business was forced to close.

 On December 7, 1937, Dietsch Brothers, as you know it today, opened its doors when Chris (Bud) and Don (Johnny) purchased the local Rogge Bakery Shop. Youngest brother, Roy (Snitz) helped out while finishing high school and after graduating in 1938, joined the business full time. The brothers eliminated the bakery and began producing fine chocolates and ice cream using Ed’s family recipes.
